LIFE IN 4000 METERS

From Base Camp to the Highest Peaks of the Alps . The joy of reaching the top times 82: All the peaks of the Alp’s 4000m mountains

by Czerny , Marlies

On mountains like the Matterhorn, Mont Blanc and the Dufour Peak it’s not about speed or the levels of difficulty, but about realizing how little you actually need to reach the summit of happiness.

It’s not until she is forced to use up her vacation days one day that sportjournalist Marlies Czerny hits the mountain. The first meters are incredibly demanding. But still, it’s an escape from the sensory overload of journalism and a journey to oneself. That feeling of climbing higher than 4,000 meters for the first time. The warmth of the sunrises with their intense colors. The horror when other climbers don’t make it back down. Marlies Czerny notonly balances along steep ridges with herclimbing partners, but also between work and life. Ten years later, she is one of the first women to have reached the peaks of all of the Alp’s 4000 m mountains.
